    Supervalu (SVU +2.6%) gets a new CFO, hiring OfficeMax (OMX -1.5%) CFO Bruce Besanko. Supervalu CEO Sam Duncan, of course, came over from OfficeMax in 2011 after turning that company around. Besanko is set to start his new job on August 7. (PR)

    More on June Retail Sales: Strength in autos buoys the June number while demand for building materials & garden equipment (HD, LOW, WMT), as well as sales at grocery stores (KR, SVU, SWY) and restaurants looks weak. As Bloomberg notes, receipts at restaurants and bars had their worst drop in more than five years.

    Remember when Wal-Mart (WMT -0.2%) was supposed to crush regional grocery store chains into submission? Though the Bentonville giant accounts for a formidable 30% of all grocery sales in the U.S., regional brands such as Hy-Vee, Piggly Wiggly, and Save-A-Lot (SVU) to name a few have survived primarily on brand loyalty. The trend adds logic to the decision by Kroger (KR) to keep its chain distinct from Harris Teeter (HTSI).

    More on ICSC Retail Store Sales: The timing of the July 4th holiday was a factor in the strong week as the reading came in at its highest level since May. Grocery stores (SWY, SVU, KR, WFM) in particular showed strength during the week.

    Retail watch: Walgreen's (WAG -7%) FQ3 earnings report may have tipped off a disturbing industry trend, according to analysts. Front-end sales dropped 3.9% during the quarter as the pattern of soft traffic for the drugstore sector (RAD, CVS) continues. Though the dollar store group (DLTR, DG, FDO) has been a competitive threat for items such as toiletries and greeting cards, it's the grocery sector (SWY, KR, SVU) which may taken the bigger slice of the consumables pie.

    More on May Retail Sales: As expected the late start to the spring season helped boost the building material & garden equipment category (HD, LOW, SHLD, WMT) as sales improved 0.9% M/M and 10.1% Y/Y. Grocery store sales (KR, SVU, SWY, WFM) were solid during the month, while department store sales (KSS, DDS, JCP, M, JWN) came in a touch light.

    Kroger (KR) +1.8% AH and Supervalu (SVU) +4.5% after Safeway announces it's selling its Canadian ops for C$5.8B ($5.7B), and suggests "the higher multiples attributed to Canadian supermarket companies" were a factor behind its decision.

    The headaches continue for the grocery store sector (SVU, KR, SWY, RNDY, HTSI) as Amazon and Wal-Mart (WMT +0.4%) circle around like hungry vultures. Though both companies are only in the early stages (AmazonFresh, Neighborhoods Market) of their grocery initiatives, analysts think their considerable distribution prowess makes them a long-term threat. Reuters' Jessica Wohl has the factoid of the day: "A Walmart grocery distribution center can house up to 4 million bananas at one time."
